Cade's Cove Tennessee, Smokey Mountains, USA
Driven, tossed into the relentless ocean of time
Destitute and lost from the guiding eye
I hear a murmur from the heavens above
Nighttime, reminding me of where I am.
And because the sky forgets nothing,
It tells me something happens;
When you grow up, your heart dies.
Slowly, invisibly; an evaporated goodbye.
One day you awake with no bearing at hand.
Alone, sitting by the edge of the galactic sea
Gazing into a meaningless tomorrow.
Lowering my nets; within these days,
Everything seems easier to forget.
With a flash of light, roaring in thunder
The rain and snow fall from the sky
Attending to the parched coastline, so little.
But, don’t let it leave without nourishing,
Our world and this lost heart.
Desperation! And then,
Bid the darkness, turn to day
Wipe sorrow’s tears away
Pure warmth and changeless it may be
When I think of the perfect day
All the mists are whisked away
As the skies are clearing, I will think of you
In whose life, I see all; anew
Let your clear light, forever shine
And not be vanquished and resigned
Come let us nurture a future we will see
With a compass for a journey that’s soon to be
And carry with it, a heart that murmurs softly
To the sounds of the falling rain.
